The ADA Council on Scientific Affairs in May accepted Crest 3D White
Glamorous White Whitestrips based on the finding that the product is
safe and effective in whitening natural teeth when used according to the
manufacturer's instructions. In 2016 the Council developed rigorous
requirements for both safety and efficacy in this new category.

"Crest 3D White Glamorous White Whitestrips clearly met these
requirements and were awarded the ADA Seal of Acceptance, assuring
consumers that this product is both safe and effective for home-use
tooth bleaching," said John Dmytryk, D.M.D., Ph.D., chair of the Council
on Scientific Affairs Seal subcommittee.

The Whitestrips mold to the shape of teeth and come off cleanly,
according to the P&G Crest website, and are recommended by the company
for use once a day for 30 minutes.

"We want people to know that our whitening technology has been
thoroughly vetted by a trusted third party for dental professionals and
users alike," said Paul Sagel, P&G research fellow and Crest Whitestrips
inventor. "When it comes to whitening, there can be some
misunderstanding around how effective and safe whitening treatments are
to the user. We hope having the ADA Seal will provide users even more
clarity and confidence in their whitening choice with Crest 3D White
Glamorous White Whitestrips."
